Add your location to Shorts

Walking in the footsteps of TikTok, YouTube is trying to offer you more relevant content by allowing its Shorts creators to add a layer of geographic nuance to their uploaded verticals, a big contextual move for localizing recommendations.

This can be achieved with the help of new location tags being cooked in Google labs at the moment. The anticipated update will add a ‘Location’ row inside the ‘Add details’ page upon uploading your designated Short, replacing the need for the app’s metadata editor after the clip has been posted.

Until the feature is rolled out to the masses, watch Creator Insider’s take right here.
